My Night Hymn

I love to sing in the night when I cannot sleep. Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Being paralyzed and lying in bed can be so claustrophobic. At least when I'm sitting up, I can flail my arms around, but when lying down, gravity is my enemy. So to comfort myself, I will softly sing in the night. You know, Charles Spurgeon once wrote, "Any man can sing in the day… [but] it is not in man's power to sing when all is adversity... so, since our Maker gives 'songs in the night', let us wait upon Him for the music." You know friend, perhaps you find yourself in a difficult season, and spiritually, there seems to be no song, no music in your heart. Well, maybe it's time you asked God to put a song back in your heart. Job chapter 35 promises that God gives us songs in the night. He may give you a hymn or worship song you haven’t thought of for years.  And who knows, maybe in the dark, you will join me in a little harmony.
